education

Real estate licensees must complete defined amounts of continuing education (CE) to meet requirements set forth by the Delaware Division of Professional Regulation and administered by the Delaware Real Estate Commission (DREC).

education opportunities

The bulk of your education opportunities will come from your local association. DAR does provide courses approved for continuing education at the annual conference each fall, as well as training for various designations and certifications.
Other commercial sources offer continued education as well.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

As you may know, real estate licensees must complete defined amounts of continuing education (CE) to meet requirements set forth by the Delaware Division of Professional Regulation and administered by the Delaware Real Estate Commission (DREC). License renewal is every two years, always ending on April 30 in an even year, and requires agents to complete 21 credit hours of education on a multitude of topics.

requirements

The content and amount of continuing education (CE) that you are required to complete depends on when your license was issued and whether you are a broker/associate broker or a salesperson. New agents have specific requirements to complete within the first year of licensure. Reach out to either your broker and/or local association for clarification on what is required of you.

CLASSES

Most continuing education classes are offered primarily by your local association. Classes are held at various times with qualified instructors and approved offerings for each module. Courses are also offered year-round through other education vendors, such as The CE Shop. Additionally, during the annual DAR conference (held in early October) you can earn up to 9 hours of CE credit for free.
